My radio career began at KIEE-FM in Harrisonville, Missouri which later became KCFX in Kansas City. I worked there for 4 years before landing a position at WTAD and KHQA-TV here in Quincy doing a radio show and play-by-play sports. After doing TV Sports for KHQA, I worked for both WTAD and WQCY-FM (99Q). I moved over to WGEM as Operations Manager and then returned to WTAD as General Manager. In 2001 I joined Y101. I have been fortunate enough to win 6 Silver Dome Awards from the Illinois Broadcasters Association , including 5 for best Play-By-Play and one for Best Radio Show Entertainer. My favorite music is the Blues. The New York Yankees and the Kansas City Chiefs are my favorite teams. I played baseball for 24 years and my claim to fame is a double off of Rick Sutcliffe when we both played in Kansas City.

I thought to myself why would this be listed as a historical occasion. I read on and found my answer.

Brian Williams and the Almighty Dollar

I have purposely waited for a week to make any comment about the major news item that came to light last week. The suspension of Brian Williams. Now here is a guy who makes 10-million dollars a year that had to lie about what he saw and did in a war zone. Why would someone in his position do that? Money, that's why!

Time to Expand Amtrak Routes to Hannibal and the West

It has been over a year ago when the Quincy Herald Whig, in their Five on Five feature, asked the question Is Amtrak Passenger Rail Service Between Hannibal and Quincy a Good Idea?” The consensus over a year ago was that it is a good idea. I agreed then and I still agree now. Last year a group in Hannibal was looking into the feasibility of developing passenger rail service from Hannibal to Quincy and beyond. It is the “beyond” that made the idea intriguing.

Baseball Has Made ‘Cracker Jack’ a Household Name

The song came out in 1908 and it is played at almost every baseball game played in America including the Hannibal Cavemen and the Quincy Gems games. It’s the “Take Me Out to the Ballgame” song and that song has single handedly sent the sales of Cracker Jack through the roof. In the song there is a line that says “Buy me some peanuts and Cracker Jack.”

Fighting is OK On The Ice But Not Off?

What is good for one set of people is apparently not good for another. I was talking with some friends recently while watching the St. Louis Blues play the Chicago Black Hawks. During a lull in the action, the TV broadcast began to show some highlights of a fight that took place in a recent encounter between the two teams. Fighting in the game of hockey is down for the most part but still occurs. The National Hockey League has a dilemma to deal with.
